Sepia Saturday : Week 32

Whilst we still have many new participants taking part in Sepia Saturday, the number of people taking part each week seems to have peaked, which - in many ways - is a welcome thing. It means that the project remains manageable : when you come to visit other participants you are not faced with an impossibly long list. You can take your time, read the posts at your leisure, and make comments that are meaningful rather than superficial. Feedback on comments often opens up discussion which adds a new dimension to creative blogging.

I got into one such discussion last week with Tattered and Lost whose blogs feature - amongst other things - ephemera and vernacular photography. We talked about how you embark on an adventure when you begin to bring one of these old photographs to life, and how a good writer - like T&L and, indeed, all of you - can incorporate the reader in the process of discovery.

The intimacy of small numbers is nice, but we could always do with just one or two more. So why not join in with our Sepia Saturday adventure this week and open up a new discussion. Sign up to the Linky List with a link to your post.

Hello Alan, I hope I have done everything correctly to join in with Sepia Saturday! I have had a lot of fun going through our family's old photos and even found a few surprises along the way.

Likely folks are summer busy and on vacations....but I made it here again this week. Right not so many to review but each is enjoyable.

Hi Alan, It is fun to dwell a little in the past and to recall our kin from time to time. It is true if the memes get to big, the individuality to the comments get lost. Anyway here I am again trying to give a glimpse of my family.

Thanks Alan for your fine commentary on how Sepia Saturday can bring up discussions and as one said find photos and surprises in our old photos. I have a great time every week looking up things to write about. I love it.

Again I dig into the mysterious Big Bag of Negs to see what I can find.

It's been a busy month what with graduations and such, but glad to get back in the sepia swing with a series of vintage advertisements with personal connections!
